In comparison, most of the social media you’re already using is best at letting you interact with people you already know.
On a dating app, though, you’re guaranteed to be matched with fresh faces in your age range, and there’s the excitement that this could turn into something, even if you’re not super invested in that happening.
It gives people a low-key way to find friends — and maybe even a community — they wouldn't necessarily find elsewhere.
It’s turned on automatically if you decline to give the app your location, but you can also opt in yourself.
In an effort to capitalize on this, Bumble added Bumble BFF in early 2016, and Tinder launched Tinder Social a year ago.
But they haven’t exactly taken off as the premiere way of finding new pals.
It’s often somewhere between flirtation and pure friendship.
Alper suspects the popularity of Global Mode is due to it mimicking real life more than location-based matching does: “When people want to meet someone in real life, they’ll go to a bar. You go with your friends, whatever." And conversations happen more naturally.
